Nc18S_SpartaHou.jpg

Magnificent, old deserted house with multiple gables. Located atop a mountain along NC18S of Sparta, NC. Cattle have rubbed down parts of the old porch or veranda on right side. An electric fence prevented seeing the back side, but the design seems to have had porch wrap all way around. The left side seems to have gotten the same cow rub.

 

In its day, one can imagine close friends/family sitting and sipping around the porch at sunset.

 

It is now surrounded by fences for the cattle and electric ones along the road for humans, I suppose. I'd like to hope the owners are considering a re-fit. It would be a shame to let so grand a dame wither.
